Ch. La Fleur Pétrus (0.75 L)
NM: Served at a mini-vertical at the Chateau, the 2007 La Fleur-P¿ªtrus has a lifted nose, the fruit more red than black, with cranberry, wild strawberry mingling with touches of warm gravel and dried herbs. It opens nicely in the glass. The palate is rounded and savoury, almost meaty on the entry. The acidity is nicely judged and it has a very harmonious, ferrous finish that caresses the palate. It perhaps would benefit with a little more length and tension, but this remains a commendable, enjoyable Pomerol for the vintage that will drink well over the next decade. Tasted June 2013.
